We welcome all military veterans at Ancilla College. In fact, we have a number of packages to make it easier for you to get your associate degree.
Ancilla College was named as one of the country’s “Military Friendly Schools” by GI Jobs Magazine three year is a row.
You’ve served your country and we believe in you. Ancilla College is open to veterans and the families and we will work hard to reduce the time and hassle you may face at other institutions.
One of the benefits of serving your country is access to veterans’ education programs that enable you to begin (or resume) your education after you’ve been discharged from active duty, or while serving in the reserves. Veterans attending Ancilla College may receive regular education compensation for which they may qualify through the Veterans Administration. Current Reservists may qualify for a portion of their tuition, fees and books to be paid through the Military Tuition Assistance Program. All military academic transcripts must be submitted to the Registrar’s Office for evaluation of previous credits earned.
Both the federal government and nonprofit organizations offer money for college to veterans, future military personnel, active duty personnel, or those related to veterans or active duty personnel.
Chapter 33: The Post 9/11 program is available to qualifying veterans at Ancilla College. Students eligible for Post 9/11 benefits should submit their Certificate of Eligibility (COE), if available, to the Office of Financial Aid.
If a Post 9/11 veteran is eligible for benefits at the 100% rate, Ancilla College participates in the Yellow Ribbon Program. As part of the Yellow Ribbon Program, a veteran’s tuition and fees will be 100% covered at Ancilla College. The veteran may also be eligible for a book allowance, as well as a living/rent allowance.

An active-duty,post-9/11 service member may be eligible to transfer his/her benefits to a spouse or to children. Conditions for eligibility can be found at www.GIBILL.va.gov or from the Office of Financial Aid.
Any veteran or student planning to receive or use any type of military benefits should schedule an appointment with the Director of Financial Aid to discuss possible benefits and prepare for certification of enrollment/attendance at Ancilla College. Veterans should plan on providing a copy of their DD214, NOBE, COE, or other relevant military paperwork to the College. Veterans should also complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as they may also be eligible for federal, state, or institutional grants, awards, or loans. Any veteran or family member can find information at www.GIBILL.va.gov.
Veterans should submit documentation of all prior military training and experience for evaluation and possible awarding of college credit. Veterans may obtain military transcripts at: www.acenet.edu/transcripts.
Any student who is called to active duty may withdraw from all courses and receive a 100% refund of tuition and fees or with permission of instructor(s) receive an incomplete or final grade in the course taken. (Students must provide a copy of their orders along with a completed withdrawal forms.)
